I have been waiting since April 10 to get my "database loaded". It seems to be hit or miss with some saying it's working for them. The Assist people are to contact me when it's ready to be tested. And specifically I want to test out the google feature!

Works for us, just hit the SOS button and the lady came on and went over everything with us. Sorry to hear this.

Does the google feature and the internet only work when you subscribe to the concierge service ??

No. Google maps work with BMW assist. Concierge is not required.

BMW USA is telling me technically Assist works for emergency and the such BUT sending google map address to my 2014 is NOT working until after July (they hope). Does anyone with a 2014 know for a fact that they have successfully used google maps to send data to car?
thanks
scott

No, the only thing that does not work until july is in-car internet browsing. All other functions like traffic, weather, seach, etc work fine. Outside the car, the google send to car function works (and I have used it several times). In google maps, you select the send to car, set it to bmw, then use the email address that you registered bmw assist with.

I have BMW Assist Supervisor on the phone. they are aware that few 2014 are working but on the whole there is an issue with package mismatch codes on majority of 2014 X3...he gave me his personal extension and took mine...promised to get back to me when he hears of a fix. says he has talked to other 2014 owners with similar problems. I hope it gets resolved sooner rather than later. the google maps send to car is an awesome feature that I used daily.

Sat radio in 2014 is part of the premium package, not tech, but looks like you have premium based on your sig. You should call your CA.

yes, I'm sorry, I meant premium package.

My CA has not been much help with the issue. I dont believe it is because he doesn't care, but rather he is inexperienced. He used to work for the Mini branch of the dealership and just got moved up to the BMW side. Unfortunately I do not think they trained him very well.

satellite radio works for me. all the in car apps. news feed, gas, weather all seem to work. I just can't send maps via google to the car.
for the satelite issue, I had initially problems activating and getting the signal to stay. the problem turned out to be the keys. I had both keys on me when activating the sirius signal for the first time. then i had only 1 key the next time and no satellite radio. called Sirius listner car, sent another signal and now it using only 1 key on my person at at time, the signal has stayed.

Did you call and set it up? This is outside of BMW's hands and due to some privacy thing or something, it is up to you to call Sirius to turn it on. They will know by the ESN you give them that you get one free year.

If you have already done it and it still is not working, turn on your sirius radio where it has good reception, then call sirius and have them resend your activation.

No I did not know I needed to call Sirius to turn it on. I was not told that by my dealership. Where you given paperwork when you picked up the car about setting up Sirius? what number do I need to call and what information do I need to have to have them activate it?

What is the ESN #? Did you just call the general Sirius number?

Thank you in advance for the help.
